Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Monroe Owen Appraisal, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's practically impossible for them to get a handle on their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Going to sell your home yourself?

An increasing amount of IN homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a expert appraiser. You need objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Prevent the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they expected they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it helped them to to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
